Types of Off Campus Accommodation

 

Off-Campus Apartment Complexes


There are a number of privately run apartment complex developments located in the Castletroy area where accommodation is offered to students attending third level colleges in the area. Each complex has its own website and is located within 20 minutes' walk from the main entrance of UL. Properties are managed by private management companies and rental fees are normally paid in advance of each semester. Students interested in living in an apartment complex off campus should contact the operators directly.

Off campus student villages within walking distance to the University include: 

 

  • Brookfield Hall www.brookfieldhall.com
